REFUNDS - WITHDRAWAL Inasmuch as faculty engagements and other commitments are made by the University for the entire year in advance, the following refund schedule has been established in order that the University and the student may share the loss equitably when it is necessary for a student to withdraw from school :

First two-days: complete refund.

In a three or five week class, 70% day three and four, 30% refunded during the second week, none thereafter

Classes that do not fall within the regular session dates will still follow the refund schedule under the first session. Al l arranged courses follow the refund schedule of the first session. No course may be dropped after its ending date, and no tuition will be refunded if a student unofficially withdraws after the final day to officially drop a class has passed. Class fees are not refundable after the second day of the session. Tuition refunds for class changes (where applicable) will be made in the same manner as refunds for withdrawals (i.e, full refund within first two weeks of classes and pro-rated refund after second week until end of eighth week) All refunds must be requested by properly completing and submit­ ting a departure card or class drop form, the official withdrawal date determining the amount of refund. Class, laboratory, health, insur­ ance, parking, activity and other fees are refundable only if withdraw­ al is on or before the final date of late registration.
